John passed away peacefully into his father’s kingdom in the evening hours of March 19th. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Marilyn, daughter Karen and two grandchildren, Jennifer and Jacob and many friends.
John was a devoted family man, an active member of the Catholic Church and a life member of the Knights of Columbus, a dedicated teacher at all educational levels for 40 years, and a volunteer in his community. He was active his entire life in all manner of sports but especially passionate for the game of golf. Never too late to try something new, he started seniors curling in his 70’s.
Many thanks from the family to the medical staff in the oncology on 8 South at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, Dr. Vanessa Bernstein and staff at the BC Cancer Centre and to the office of Dr. William Ross McKay for their care and compassion during John’s Illness.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1pm, April 9th, 2016 at St. Rose of Lima, 2191 Townsend Rd., Sooke, BC.
In lieu of flowers, donations in John’s memory may be made to St. Vincent de Paul or the
